Initiated by the Commission on Filipinos Overseas in 1989, the initiative aimed at matching the resources donated by overseas Filipino associations to meet the needs of disadvantaged communities in the Philippines. The LINKAPIL program has been in existence long before remittances, diaspora philanthropy or migrant giving and the migration-development nexus caught the interest of the global community. A brief introduction about the program is provided, followed by vignettes of selected donors and a focus on livelihood projects. Part 2 presents sketches of migrant giving, migrants’ investments and models of partnership between overseas Filipinos and local institutions culled from the research conducted by MAPID-Philippines in 2008.
